A page turner from the beginning. A story everyone can relate to. All bets are off when it comes to family and love. Finished it 2 days it would have been one day if I had the time. A charming account of what happens in the crazy twists and turns of life. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a great story full of surprises and humor.

This author nails the love of the imperfect ¿ herself and her husband - and how it is essential to the human experience. Her self deprecating, but beautiful woman's voice, pierced the pain of this story with humor and forced me to ask myself: Why did I marry this man? Why didn't I marry that man? What should I do now? ¿Just love him?¿

Like the SF earth quake in 1989, she took me off my feet from the first page and landed me back on them by the end. Thank you Mary Patrick Kavanaugh whoever you are. I love you and I love this book!

Family Plots is wonderful on so many levels that I¿m afraid I won¿t do it justice, but I¿m going to try, because I think Mary Patrick Kavanaugh and her incredible first book deserve widespread recognition. Though it¿s written as a novel, the book is basically the true story of the author¿s search for love and stability for herself and her small daughter. She does find happiness, but there's a hitch: the man of her dreams is not exactly on the up and up, an he comes with a cast of characters that are both mysterious and shady. I won¿t try to summarize the plot, because I don¿t want to give anything away, but it¿s a remarkable, sometimes zany story with unforgettable characters, masterful dialog, and so much humor and heart that I predict it will become a best seller. This book is simply a pleasure to read, and though it¿s humorous throughout, it ultimately takes you to a place that is surprisingly serious, with messages about love and humanity that are deeply moving. Family Plots has everything. Above all, it has Mary, whose honesty and quirky take on life make it one of the best modern novels I¿ve read. I simply love this book, and heartily recommend it to anyone who appreciates a good story, superb writing, and the kind of wit and wisdom that make you fall in love not only with the book, but also with the author.
